We finally moved into our new house and I’ve been working to get the nursery ready for the baby. It’s coming together, but something about it seems “off” – can anyone help me coordinate the bedding, curtains, etc. with the wall color?!
Here are some inital photos:
My dad came to visit and installed chair rail and crown molding, which I LOVE.
He also repainted the second hand dresser white and painted the room lavender for me…
I’m not sure that I really like the shade of purple that I picked, but he spent a lot of time on it and I’d really hate to redo it… so I think I need to make the purple work.
The hall right outside the bedroom is painted a creamy yellow color. It opens to a 2-story foyer that is the same color, and I don’t want to get into painting that right now… Luckily, the bedding that I’d purchased previously has yellow in it, so it seems to help the rooms flow from one to the other…
Trouble is, I don’t know if the yellow really goes with the shade of purple that I have on the wall… or maybe it’s the yellow on the chair cushions that is the problem? Something about the room feels off to me, but I’m not sure what!!! The cushions were purchased on Clearance from Pier 1… I was going to have my mom alter them to fit the glider… but I’m thinking that the yellow on the chair might be the problem… in that case I could return them and recover the original glider cushions… but in what color?
I have a bunch of crib sheets in different patterns… the one that is currently on the bed is a cheap one that doesn’t go with the Land of Nod bedding… I do have the sheets that go with it though… one is yellow and the other purple.
(Note: the crib is set down super low because my nephew is coming to visit and he is standing/climbing, so it’s set for him).
I need to frame and put up this print up, likely over the crib:
Should I switch to a different bedding all together?
What would you do for the curtains? The quilt/bedskirt has pink in it that I could try to bring out…
Maybe with curtains like this?
or I could do purple stripe…
or purple eyelet:
or patterned sheer
…and would you add a rug???
I’m open to any ideas re: different bedding, rugs, curtains, artwork… thanks!!!!!
